No. It's a rare disease and only in Africa to date.

Not really.  Sure, ebola itself is very scary, but the outbreaks are fairly sudden and relatively short-lived.  The virus requires direct contact for transmission, and has a fairly short incubation period. The disease has also been confined to Africa, so I'm not concerned right now about any kind of outbreak in the United States.

You are keeping up with the news are you? Two (last I saw) Americans have it, and they are being treated here.

Quoting mcknitro: No. It's a rare disease and only in Africa to date.

What about the missionary that got sick on the plane? What about the NC hospital er that was on lockdown because they tested someone who possibly had it

I knew two Americans had it and they got it in Africa. I'm not sure about being treated here , didn't hear that. They had family members that were being kept in quarantine last I heard in the US.

Yes. I can deal with reading and watching horror movies, but nothing scares the complete shit out of me like Ebola.
